Benfay - Albedo Feature [raam007]

by Benfay

Published February 10, 2005
Topics Ambient


benfay from bern (.ch) is a master of multiple genres and instruments and his biography reads like a journey through all aspects of music.
he received his double bass education at the jazz school of bern and at the hochschule für musik und theater. in 1999 he got in touch with berne's electronic music scene and thereafter decided to fully concentrate on the production of electronic music. an autodidact, he persued and achieved a full knowledge of the use of various digital music production-tools and the art of mastering.

releases on various labels emcompassing everything from techno to ambient followed, and numerous ep's like "carbon", "nitron", bergflanke" and his exquisite album "one touch button music" on thinnerism.com reflect the various stages of his musical and personal development.

for realaudio.ch he composed a breathtaking album that combines accoustic sounds and field recording with electronic music, which he fused together with his double bass.
tracks that jan jelinek couldn't have done better, and unexpectedly show another different and subtle side, influenced by his experiments in surround technology and his activities in the project "ja, ich will" with jan galega.

this album is dedicated to rhea, and other planetary phenomena.
get ready for an intergalactical experience.

Clicks'n'Cuts der friedlichen, warmen und ambienten Sorte. Absolut zu empfehlen.

First I want to mention that track #6 "Rhea vs. Ben" is without a doubt one of the best ambient compositions I've ever heard. It's one of those rare pieces that I will both begin and end my day with for days to come. It actually sent a shiver through my body the first few times I listened to it. The only other ambient composition to do this in the recent past was "Yara 1" from Marsen Jules' "Yara" release on Autoplate. "Albedo Feature" itself is representative of some of the best romantic ambient available from the archive - creating a very emotional atmosphere. "Hera vs. Dublin" which begins with a brief romantic accordion sample and quickly takes on a dreamy, almost etheral quality. "Poseidon vs. Enescu" and "Hestia vs. Beethoven" are both layered with disscordance and inharmonious tones and loops to create a slight tension that never quite gets resolved. "Demeter vs. Satie" offers glitch, microsounds, and throbbing bass notes amid a layer of slightly chaotic acoustic sounds, while "Zeus vs. Piazolla" has an almost jazz-like appeal with its sparse piano notes, violin, and minimal electronics.
